Subject: Gothic Mountain

Avalanches:

Either after dark last night ( most likely) or early today a good size slide ran off the ridge above the north cirque on Gothic Mountain. Debris reached at least to near the river and maybe further (will check it out this afternoon). I was right by there near sunset last night actually looking up into that area wondering where the safest assent to there would be and came up with a good answer- i went home and watched a movie.

Note, i have the camera trained on the fracture this afternoon if you want to see it at gothgicwx.org and click on YouTube arrow. billy
